As holly and jolly as it is to decorate our homes to match the festive season, this is a prime time of year for holiday-related injuries! Sigma Wellness urges you to exercise caution when….
1. Hanging Lights
You’re using a ladder. ‘Nuff said.
2. Lifting Heavy Presents
That’s what you get for getting your daughter the deluxe doll dream house she asked for – a slipped disk! Remember, lift with the knees.
3. Shoveling Snow
All of our Midwest and mountain readers can attest – shoveling snow is hard work! Lower back injuries are a common ailment of snow shoveling, as are muscle and ligament injuries. Take breaks to go inside, warm up, and rest!
Stay safe this holiday season!
